The Patriots – Altered Vintage Photos

Every holiday season since Christmas I have been having fun altering vintage photos.  I have acquired a stash of old photos, and tend to become attached to these forgotten folks.  I look at their faces, and wonder what stories they have to tell, what joys and triumphs and tragedies their lives held.  As I redress them, and add seasonal accessories, I feel like I get to know them….and maybe they are just a little less forgotten.

For these photos, I altered Tim Holtz reproduction photo cards:
